The team at 2K and Firaxis Games announced that you can now pre-order their upcoming title XCOM: Enemy Within. If you pre-order it digitally you’ll get 10% off – a nice little perk. Additionally, if you missed out on the original (and by original I mean original) you can pick up the XCOM franchise for 75%! If you want to take XCOM: Enemy Unknown (our review) for a spin before you commit, it’s also up for Steam’s Free-to-Play Weekend until this Sunday, October 6th at 4:00pm. The special pricing offer for the franchise pack (which includes XCOM Declassified (our review) – the most recent entry) ends on October 7th at 10:00am EST, so act quick.
I’m very closely watching Enemy Within – I’ll keep you posted on that as news breaks.
